Pulling String or Gum Off My Teeth
by Heidi Jordan
I had this recurring dream of frustration. There would be a string caught between my teeth and I would pull and pull and pull but never found the end of the string. My teeth would loosen and sometimes fall out. Sometimes it would be chewing gum doing the same thing. Stuck on my teeth and I would try to pull it off. I would pull and pull and it just kept getting longer and longer in my hand and wouldn't come off my tooth.
I finally figured out that it meant that I felt I was being strung along in life. I had a manipulative person in my life who was lying to me and stringing me along with those lies. I felt helpless and without control of the situation.
